Those are gateway guns, ones that will draw you into a new addiction!  

I went on GB and bought this 1851 Navy in .44 to match the one my dad gave me.  It's factory nickeled and engraved, so not a perfect match, but it's a Sheriff's model and a pretty gun.

@Captain Bill Burt found these pics of me shooting at Cavern Cove last year.  Thought I’d wet your appetite for some smokey goodness

The gun my father gave me is ready to go.  The one I bought needs a little more more work on the bore, but it's pretty much ready.  I have the caps for several matches, plus enough on order for probably all of 2021. I need to talk to @Scarlettand buy a few  pounds of 2ff APP when our schedules next cross. 

 

I also need a source for .44 balls.  Any suggestions?

I went in to sportsman warehouse. The only powder they have is black...triple 7 or pyrodex. I might be shooting frontier too. Now I know I don't want that rustex in my guns but they had a bunch of triple 7 2f or 3f  $30 for the small jugs I think they a pound. They had blackhorn too heard that's good stuff $43 for 10 oz bottle

How many do you need? I believe I have quite a few ... I can send some FFg home with @Max Payne from Dark Day... he said he was ok with being my “mule” :D

The black horn or buckhorn 209 is not a SASS approved black powder substitute. I am the distributor for American Pioneer Powder and ship by the case 12 pounds/case. I ship 1, 2 and 4 case quantities. Feel free to email me at Bulletsbyscarlett@gmail.com. 
 

Hugs!

As Scarlett pointed out Blackhorn209 is not SASS legal and is a really hot powder.

 

If you look at the T7 labels you will note that one is for cartridges only and one is muzzle loader only. T7 is a lot hotter than real BP or APP so buy the T7 grade for your application.

You can use T7 for CAS just keep in mind that it is a lot hotter so you will need to load less powder and use a wad or a little filler so that the ball lightly compresses the powder.

I can't tell if you kept your A.S.M. gun or not, but jwcchris on ebay has a large stock of Armi San Marco parts if you are ever looking for something and they combine shipping.  I just bought a bunch of parts for my 1860 and 1858 ASM guns and was looking for something they didn't have listed.  I contacted them and they said they had it, they listed it so I could buy everything and ship together.  Very helpful.

I sold the ASM Army and bought another Pietta Navy.  I'm probably going to have Mike at Goons Gun Works slick them up some.

@Captain Bill Burt I really recommend @Springfield Slim SASS #24733  prices are good, quick shipping.

I appreciate the info!  I've already spoken with Mike and worked out a deal though.  He's local to me, only about 45 minutes away, so I won't be dropping the guns off until he's ready to do the work.

Buy the real stuff-FFFg for your revolvers. Real black powder, even with shipping, looks to be cheaper than the subs.

I actually was talking about Springfield’s balls, he ships fast and his balls are shiny and smooth :ph34r:, he tumbles them against each other.

 

I think you’re going to like what Mike does to your guns, I know I do.  He worked on 2 Remington NMAs, I can run 6 stages without a hiccup and after 6+ months of shooting them 2-3 times per month I still haven’t had to do a deep cleaning.  Be patient the wait is worth it.

Thanks!  I just ordered 1,000.
